Posted in Labels: ,

With the advancement of technology and internet , cyber safety has become a real issue for parents ,schools and other educative agents . Integrating materials from the internet into our classrooms do not always prove to be the best solutions sometimes we risk our students safety or exposure to non relevant ads . In this regard , I have prepared a paper about some student-friendly and safe search engines we can use with our students at school.
